HON® History

From humble midwestern beginnings in 1943, The HON Company has grown into a Fortune 500 company, retaining its original humanistic principles and values; HON still calls its employees "members" and products on the line are still "hammer tested." Conceived of by an engineer, an advertising executive and an industrial design firm owner, their manufacturing company would put returning G.I.s to work making steel kitchen cabinets for use in new homes. They called the company Home-O-Nize and adopted a "people before profits" philosophy and was among the first companies to institute an annual cost-of-living increase.

Their founder, C. Maxwell Stanley based his business philosophy on a belief that success would come to a company that treated its customers, partners, suppliers, and employees with fairness, honesty, integrity, and respect. With those guiding principles in place and an innovative new product line, Home-O-Nize incorporated in 1944. The early days were tough going. A severe steel shortage following the war threatened to close their first factory. But Home-O-Nize survived by going into the contract business. Cleverly, the founders began designing products that could be made from scrap metal left over from their contract work. A 3-by-5 index card file made from recycled aluminum became their first office product. Before long, office products became their primary focus. Because they were no longer producing products for the home only, they began using the acronym H-O-N, which later became HON.

They officially became HON Industries in the 1960s. After a few decades of steady growth through profitable acquisitions, shareholders approved a change from HON Industries to HNI Corporation. Today, HNI Corporation manages multiple office furniture brands—including HON, Allsteel, Gunlocke, HBF, Paoli, and Maxon—and is the parent company for Hearth & Home Technologies, the world's leading producer and installer of hearth products. But it all started with HON, and they're still the largest operating company under HNI.
